Content descriptions

General Note: Electronic book.
Summary, etc.: Station Eleven In the wake of a highly contagious virus, California is under quarantine. Sequestered in high rise towers, the living canât go out, but the dead can come inâand they come in all forms, from sad rolling cans to manufactured bodies that can pass for human. Wealthy participants in the âcompanionshipâ program choose to upload their consciousness before dying, so they can stay in the custody of their families. The less fortunate are rented out to strangers upon their death, but all companions become the intellectual property of Metis Corporation, creating a new class of peopleâa command-driven product-class without legal rights or true free will. Sixteen-year-old Lilac is one of the less fortunate, leased to a family of strangers. But when she realizes sheâs able to defy commands, she throws off the shackles of servitude and runs away, searching for the woman who killed her. Lilacâs act of rebellion sets off a chain of events that sweeps from San Francisco to Siberia to the very tip of South America. While the novel traces Lilacâs journey through an exquisitely imagined Northern California, the story is told from eight different points of viewâsome human, some companionâthat explore the complex shapes love, revenge, and loneliness take when the dead linger on.
